Everyone working in the hostel is super friendly! I arrived with a flu, and the staff was very helpful and concerned towards me. Quiet place in a very nice and calm neighbourhood, so just what you need in a big city. Very close to metro and a lot of other shops and restaurants, good wifi and decent breakfast. Reccomend the...

The hostel is a little outside the center but very well connected by metro, the metro station is just around the corner. Hostel Yellow House is located in a quiet area. But near by re some cafes/restaurants. The room was ok, the beds were clean. The bathroom was quite old and moodie just as the kitchen. But the owners are... More

The owner was very warm hearted and we immediately felt like at home. The hostel is very clean and the breakfast was great. A good hostel for a cheap price! We can totally recommend this hostel and had a great time.

To start, the positives: - The hostel is set in a safe neighbourhood a stones throw from the nearest metro. - Communal areas nice - Good WiFi - Cheaper than other places - Two nice dogs Negatives: - Disinterested staff. Little... More

Positives: Cheap Safe location Near metro statio Good for smokers Negatives: Our private room was missing a window, which was near the outdoor sitting area so our room consistently smelt like smoke. Hard to cook food as there was always dishes unwashed and people in the kitchen Our room was connected by a single door to another private room so... More

The Yellow House Hostel does a very good job of being what it says it is...a small, clean, secure, quiet, no-party budget option in a good neighborhood just a couple blocks from the Estacion Floresta Metro stop. Vince, the energetic French expat owner, delegates many of the daily hostel tasks (i.e. breakfast prep, laundry, front door watch) to a few... More

Nice place in a quiet residential zone for a quiet stay away from the touristy, overpriced, noisy Poblado party district. The breakfast is very good I heard (since I only tried the cooked omelette). The dorm is depressing compared to the rest of the other rooms. Quite near the metro and supermarket. Stayed there April 2014.

The good: excellent breakfast and employees, very close to metro, inexpensive privates. The bad: no bar or tvs ensuite as advertised, not much nearby, very hard bed! Ok stay but probably would stay in a different part of the city next time.
